    I just received an olive quilted Barbour Liddesdale jacket as a gift and was wondering what the etiquette was on wearing it with jeans and a blazer. In my field, there is almost no call to wear suits anymore. Most prefer to pair dark jeans with a nice sport coat and my old overcoats seem too formal. I like the look with the Barbour (although I haven't seen anyone actually do it), but understand there opinions against wearing Barbour's waxed jackets with semi-formal wear. Does the same apply to the quilted?

    Do you ride a horse? Are you around horses in your day to day activities?

    I do not ride horses. Is that a prerequisite for owning Barbour clothing?

    That jacket should go fine with a SC/jeans combo.
